Tether is only 2.3 billion in a market of more than 500 billion.

Think about it for a minute.

Think about 2.3 Billion of liquidity is going to be removed from 10 billion...
Think about that 20 Million $ can move the market by 5-10%, then a 2.3 Billion Market order (in the worst case) will move bitcoin where?

Now that Bitcoin is gaining tracking traction by the old boy's expect to see more of these overlooked Loopholes plugged.

My only advice is to avoid exchanges that don't comply with common sense rules that crack down on fraud and other "market" exploits such as insider trading.

I blame the exchanges for the Tether nonsense.

They could have listed a genuine trustless, market backed fiat proxy such as BitUSD which would have been far more reliable and bullet proof than some corporate emperor's clothes crap like tether.

Tether is not intended to be speculative. There's supposed to be $2.3B actual fiat backing it.

vs crypto "market cap", which is hugely speculative. It's not an actual valuation, it's simply supply x price.

So yes, the collapse of Tether could have a hugely disproportionate effect on the whole crypto market if it's backed by little to nothing.

Tether might be a scam, quick sell your bitcoin for Tether! /bitfinexTraders

EDIT: I suppose you could transfer the tethers to an exchange that offered USD/USDT trading...  If the market is actually concerned about tether it is on that pair we should see panic selling I would imagine... current USD price on kraken at time of this post: $0.9899

Do you think theres enough fiat on the exchanges to cover 500 billion?

Do you think theres enough fiat in the entire world to cover the 1.2 quadrillion derivatives markets?

That's what I was about to comment. I mean if Tether has a problem, the rational thing is to dump tether => buy bitcoins => exit the exchange asap.

Obviously, demand for bitcoins should move btc price up as tether is dumped.

As many pointed out the timing couldn't have been better. I'll simply hold my coins. During these days I say to myself that 1 BTC is 1 BTC.
Our time has yet to come.

If Bitfinex and Tether blow up, I just don't care

People are in tether to avoid bitcoin. So a rational gambler would indeed buy bitcoins but would dump them later for cash.

Pretty much my thinking ^^
I’m happy with my ‘HODL’ stash & this doesn’t worry me, it’s just a bit annoying. 1 bitcoin is still 1 bitcoin, I’m planning to HODL until around a year after the next halving any way so about 2021.

This is just a small speed bump on the way to the moon, besides who doesn’t think 1 bitcoin will be worth north of $50,000 at some point?

Good things come to those who wait.
